At Malmö University, collaboration is an integral part of research and education. The aim of collaboration is to create mutual added value for the University, participating parties and society. For the University, this means increased quality and relevance in research and education and our partners get access to research-based knowledge, which favours sustainable development in both business and society.

K2 – Sweden's national centre for research and education on public transport

K2 is Sweden's national Centre for Research and Education on Public Transport. This is where academia, the public sector and industry meet to discuss and develop the role of public transport in Sweden.
We investigate how public transport can contribute to attractive and sustainable metropolitan areas of the future. We educate members of the public transport sector and inform decision-makers to facilitate an educated debate on public transport.

K2 is operated and funded by Lund University, Malmö University and VTI in collaboration with Region Stockholm, Region Västra Götaland and Region Skåne. We are supported by Vinnova, Formas and the Swedish Transport Administration.
